Not at all. I'm a slurpy nerd.

Messi was playing messy.

People watch a ton of stupid shit events in the Olympics and Winter Olympics every for years. They never watch races, curling, judo, gymnastics, etc. Don't really necessarily care for any of the sports...but they watch to root for America. They might even get excited and pumped about it...every 4 years.

Same with The World Cup, except for that, soccer is popular in America (kinda, not half as much as in almost any other country) all throughout the year, every year. MLS has been growing ever since it started thanks to the 94 World Cup.

So yeah, it does seem that more people are giving a fuck about the sport now, than usual. But that's to be expected when you get the biggest event in any sport....more people will care than usual, especially if it's international, because you hope your country does well.

Whether or not you find soccer fun/exciting/worth watching, isn't something I can argue with. I think it's one of the more interesting sports, though in general I'm not a sports guy. If you don't like it, that's cool...I just don't get your complaint about it's "sudden popularity"...

I haven't heard anything about soccer since before I graduated from high school, and there was a World Cup since then. It just seems like now people are going apeshit, and that's pretty sudden to me.

Maybe you just didn't notice the mania during the last World Cup? Sorry, perhaps in your whereabouts there is more of it than usual or than in most Cups, but I've not witnessed any particular increase in interest for soccer. Not more so than during any other Cup.

Anyway...Germany played a sick game today, so did Ghana, even if they only scored a penalty shot.

Yeah, I fell a little bit in love with Ghana today too. Not just for the way they play but for the way they and their fans celebrated. The World Cup is like a planetwide Party! Super Party! and those Ghanaians have masters degrees in partying. I just hope they can stand up to those German bombers better than the poor old Aussies did.
